Russell Brand is sick of the paparazzi and he wanted to make sure the unsuspecting office windows of New Orleans know it. The actor, who is in New Orleans filming a movie, got himself in a bit of trouble this week when he decided a photographer went just a little too far.
On Monday, Brand evidently snatched an iPhone from a paparazzo, who was taking his picture, and threw it through the window of a local law firm. The photographer filed charges for criminal damages amounting to $700, and a warrant was issued for Brand’s arrest.
Ever the responsible citizen, Brand turned himself in to the New Orleans Police on Thursday. He was booked and released shortly thereafter. He also paid $240 to the law firm whose window he smashed. Presumably he can afford to replace the guy’s iPhone, too, so why the charges? Is the pap just trying to make a point because he can?
